    Growing up, Wednesdays were the bane of my existence. My white mother would tug and pull at my tangled curls lathered in sweetly scented conditioner while I, her helpless biracial child, cried my eyes out from sheer pain and frustration. Looking back, I could have spared washing my hair twice a ...

    It was a particularly sunny day in New York City, the kind of day where the birds seemed to be singing just for you, sweetly chirping “Come out, dance with us.” It was the kind of day when New York mothers took their babies out for the daily morning job while their husbands sat in corner offices...

    It began on the Charles River. You probably don’t know, but the beginning of sophomore year of college had not been very good to me. Well, that is how I like to explain it so it does not sound like so much of it was my fault, when deep inside I know it really was. I had lost all of my friends,...

    The music fills her heart with sudden peace. She knows the sun is far beneath the hills. Malignant is the night, a late due lease upon the hearts of all the souls it kills. The wind howls at the moon and rain falls down. It calls the minds of all the sudden raged. She hopes the music br...

    There is nothing more peaceful than you floating in a blue sea. I am next to you, never without my heart to take it all in. We must swim our way back home, caught on a whim in the blue sea, away we go. Into the theater we go, my heart pumping with excitement, you calm as low tide. I pla...

    The Watsons: the perfect family on the perfect beach. The water is as blue as the sheer dress the perfectly thin mother Sarah is wearing. The sun begins its slow descent into the horizon, emitting the most wonderful hues of purple and red and pink. Sarah looks at her family. Her husband Pete, tall a...

    We wish to be the world, To know every soul and Encounter every life. When the dark storm appears, We always do come back After every stumble, After every fall. We Keep on turning. We are Always turning. Oh so Slightly, yet ever so Quick. It’s never enough To try and know the ...

    She can only love what she can own And that to her is the month of May When the flowers bloom and the grass and sky are one She wondered if sunflowers really turned with the sun Her smile was bright and the she would breathe the warm air In and out and the pollen tickled her nose. She long...

    I recently applied for the Simon Scholarship, a wonderful scholarship that helps high school sophomores who have overcome or are working on overcoming adversity get money for college. I made it to the final round, which were interviews. I felt like I did great on the interview; I spoke clearly, answ...

    Let’s face it—lying is a part of being human. We’ve all lied to our parents. At one time or another, we have found ourselves in a situation where we, in a way, have no other choice than to lie. I’m not going to lie (no pun intended); I’ve said some things to my mother that were not exactly...

    My junior year of college, there was one place that I could always be found. It was a quiet little juice bar (because to this day I don’t drink coffee) about two blocks from my closet-sized apartment in New York City’s Greenwich Village. I had discovered it a few months before and after a few te...

    Why is it that one day I can look and the mirror and feel beautiful, but the next I am staring at myself, only noticing my pimples, washed out eyes, and unfit stomach? Why am I lying on my bed in the morning surrounded by a mountain of clothes that fit yesterday? Why do I feel so ugly? It isn�...

    He watched silently as the girls surrounded the small teenage girl. She had been in his class since the fourth grade, although she never talked to him. She never talked to anybody for that matter. Whenever he saw her, she had her head buried in a novel or was ferociously writing something down in a ...

    The man was old, with sagging, wrinkled skin and scarce gray hair. He lived in a home in rural England, surrounded by tall trees that always seemed to be swaying in the wind. This was his family home. He had lived in England his entire life, apart from two months when he had been away. He sat bef...

    What ever happened to old fashion reading? Today, I was sitting in my Language Arts class, and we were filling out our reading logs for the year. I, having a natural interest in all things English related, had already had my list mostly filled up since last December. When I was writing in the las...

    One year ago, I was lying in my bed contemplating whether or not I should go on a date with a boy I had just met. We were at a park. I was with my sister, him with his brother. He said hi and we talked. And that was that. Ten months ago, I was lying in my bed contemplating whether or not I shoul...

    This is to you, from everyone. From everyone who believed your lies From everyone who looked in those eyes and saw something. This is to you, from everyone. From everyone who you stood up From everyone who dared to look up into the Heavens. This is to you, from ever...

    We’re playing Mozart in Orchestra. I’ve been looking forward to playing another Mozart piece since the end of Sophomore year, last May. I went to a one-month music camp this past summer in Prague, and surprisingly, we didn’t play any Mozart—just Beethoven, who I’m not so fond of. Dr. H...

    I’ve been dead for about a year now. You’d think I’d be filled with sadness and remorse that I didn’t get to live my life past fifteen. That’s how it was the first few weeks in Heaven, but not so much anymore. I wasn’t sure what was happening and I knew I was just dreaming. After about a...
